Unredacted - Episode 11: Interview with Jefferson Morley

Welcome to Unredacted, the MFF's interview show featuring authors and experts on the Kennedy assassination and related topics. This episode features an interview with Jefferson Morley, author of Our Man in Mexico and plaintiff in a lawsuit with the CIA over the records of deceased officer George Joannides.

Our Man in Mexico is a biography of Mexico City station chief Winston Scott (pictured above), whom Morley terms a "virtual proconsul," more powerful than the U.S. Ambassador himself. It was on Scott's watch that Lee Harvey Oswald's visits to Communist embassies in the fall of 1963 took place. Scott's version of events, put to paper in an unpublished manuscript available in the MFF Archive, flatly disputes the story told by the Warren Commission and encoded in a handful of CIA records.

In this interview, Jefferson Morley discusses the book and gives an update on his lawsuit over the Joannides records.
